Christos,
Another amazing build. The level of your added detail is so far ahead of what I could even think of accomplishing without screwing up the build. Then there is your excellent paint scheme, decaling, coupled with just the right amount of weathering for a well maintained operational aircraft. Well done my friend, very well done.

Over the last few years I've paid particular attention to the various 1/32 Trumpeter builds as I'm planning on building both Tamiya kits along with the Trumpeter -1D, and 4. The Trumpeter kits are generally considered pretty accurate except for the wheel well covers and wells them selves as they've got the shape completely wrong. It's a minor detail, but when you spent the countless hours researching and then detailing your build, I just thought I'd pass along this information.

Joel

Dear Joel,thank you very much for your beautiful comments.The most important things of this construction is the research on the subject and then the accesories that I use.In my oppenion the kit of Tamiya is the best because it has better details and it has fewer mistakes.In the other hand the kit of Trumpeter has more mistakes but it offers more accesories.You are right for the wheel covers .Furthermore I want to add that the wheels have a different form in this specific aerplane.Thank you for your imformations.Best wishes Joel!

Thanks for the great build, this has to be 1 of my favorite planes from the WWII. I have seen the Corsair from the Red Bull Flying Team do a fly by. It was just GREAT.
